After completing check-in, the passenger can book a trip by specifying the destination and having received preliminary confirmation from the driver.
The cost of the trip will be displayed on the screen at the time of ordering. The standard rate will be 25 kopecks per kilometer and 8 kopecks per minute. The minimum cost of the trip is 3 rubles.
While the application is running in test mode, users will not be able to link a bank card. However, in the car itself it will be possible to pay for the trip both in cash and by credit card.
